MSJC Ceramics will hold an Open House and Kiln Dedication in Room 607 (Ceramics Lab) on the Menifee Valley Campus as part of the events. You will find ceramicists at work, ceramic art for sale, and light snacks. Visitors are welcome to look on the patio to admire the new Geil car kiln, which will  serve the department for decades to come. This event is open to everyone.

In addition, a team of MSJC Multimedia Department students and instructors called the 50th Anniversary Project will film the grand opening ceremonies.  The team is encouraging the community to get involved in the film and support Mt. San Jacinto College at the ribbon cutting ceremony. The documentary will premiere as a short film at the annual MSJC Foundation Gala on February 9, 2013 at Pechanga Resort and Casino.
